The new development by Citadel Homes Ltd comprises of 6 traditionally styled luxury detached houses and bungalows that are located between the Talkin village and the picturesque 165-acre Talkin Tarn Country Park. The park boasts mature woodland, meadows and an 18,000-year-old glacial lake which has been used for water sports for 100’s of years.
Citadel Homes Ltd enlisted Philippa Baldwin, owner of Willow Heart Garden Design to provide the design and soft landscaping to help beautify the grounds of the new development.
The rural location and woodland surroundings were taken into consideration when designing along with the buff stone and cream rendered walls which were complemented by the planting.
Our supply included a large number of Shrubs, Trees, Herbaceous and Evergreen hedging including Buxus sempervirens which were used to give a distinct formal appearance outside the homes.
Other evergreen varieties were used to create privacy and boundaries between each property.
Tree varieties included Acer ‘Emerald Queen’, Betula jacquemontii and Carpinus betulus ‘Pyramidalis that were planted to add height and maturity to the landscaping.
Shrubs were carefully selected for specific locations and included several different varieties such as Viburnum tinus, Prunus laurocerasus ‘Otto Luyken’, Photinia fraseri ‘Red Robin’, Hebe ping. 'Pagei', Cotoneaster 'Coral Beauty', Euonymus fortunei ‘Emerald n Gold’ and Sarcocca confusa, known for its delightful winter scent that will be enjoyed when entering or leaving the new properties.
This is one of many new developments we have got involved with supplying this year including Colindale Gardens, London, Chapel Wharf Apartments, Manchester and Spinning Acres, Leeds.
